An update on Metrolinx’s Union Pearson (UP) Express Electrification
As you may know, Metrolinx is proposing to electrify the Union Pearson (UP) Express service beginning at the future UP Express Union Station in the City of Toronto and terminating at the future UP Express Pearson Station (at Terminal 1, Toronto Pearson International Airport) in the City of Mississauga. The project involves the electrification of approximately 25 km of track along the Union Station GO Rail Corridor and Kitchener GO Rail Corridor to Highway 427, where the route then follows the new UP Express spur line (under construction) into Toronto Pearson International Airport.
Metrolinx and Hydro One will be providing notification of this EA process by placing an ad in local newspapers the first week of December 2013 and mailing a notice to adjacent property owners along the corridor. I have attached a copy of the notice for your information. They are also planning Public Open Houses towards the end of January/early February 2014 and I will provide you with those details after the dates and locations are established.

The Ontario government is encouraging the public to get involved about their ideas for a new urban park and waterfront trail. Toronto residents can help shape the vision for the new park and trail by offering their ideas, insights and input, either in person or online.
The province will hold a kick-off public meeting to introduce the design team, present the project plan, explain the environmental assessment process and highlight how the public can participate and provide input into the design. Participants will also join roundtable discussions to provide creative ideas about their vision for the future park and trail.
